When i heard this i thought i was in heaven
i love this recording… i saw it in a shop and i bought it cause i had heard about donal lunny and… when i arrived home and listened to it… i got really amazed… from the first to the last song it’s a wonderful recording… i wish i could see one day all those musicians on stage…
I used to have the cd, but lost it in a move some 8 or 9 years ago. I’ve looked for it online, but can’t find it. I saw them play at the Iron Horse in Northampton, MA a few years back and bought the cd at the show.
These tunes are way beyond the sheet music …lol…Great listening !
Track #3 on “Youtube” :
On my CD of Coolfin, the last reel in the Glentown medley is The Steampacket. Was reminded and looked for this set earlier as that tune is a great finisher. I’ve edited the listing above to point to what I believe is the tune with no offence intended to Proinsios, the original poster of this album. I see The Steampacket settings listed here also show the alternative title, The Mountain Lark, the original listing for this album which appears separately as quite a different tune.
